Antique 1920s Yellow Stoneware Mixing Bowl with Blue and White Stripes
With generous hospitality, her great-niece, Mrs. Simons, brings the ancient enchantment into modern northern kitchens by allowing us to copy some of her best recipes from the old-fashioned pointed handwriting of Miss Elizabeth... (from the cookbook 200 Years of Charleston Cooking, published in 1934)
This vintage 1920s stoneware mixing bowl is a true lover of vintage kitchen life. Unmarked as to maker or manufacturer, we can only guess that it was American made and spent the majority of its long life mixing up a bevy of batters in kitchens long ago.
So classic with its blue and white stripes and so stylish with its embossed details, this bowl carries with it so much charm and personality. A true worker, this one is in remarkable shape given its age, with an ultra-shiny exterior but some signs of time-worn use on the interior - evidence of decades of mixing and whipping, beating and mashing all sorts of delights.
Mixing bowls are one of the most personal and intimate and beloved pieces of dishware in the entire kitchen and often become prized treasures passed down through generations. Here in this bowl, tumbling around with all the other ingredients were hope, optimism, pride and love for whatever finished food this bowl was whipping up. Maybe a cake for a special birthday or pancakes for a big Sunday breakfast or the filling for a pie destined for a party. Mixing bowls stir up not only ingredients but also memories too.This one contains a century's worth.
Perfectly pretty as a decorative piece in your kitchen or as a functional item, this mixing bowl is ready to bring another 100 years of joy to the kitchen.
